With the thousands of vibrators on the market, it can be quite a challenge to find which ones best fit your needs. This vibrator guide will look at you should consider before buying a vibrator. After boning up on those pointers, you can then explore some of the dozen different vibrator models to see what each has to offer. Then, this guide covers some of the you should look for in your new vibrator sex toy. By carefully planning your decision, you’ll be able to better narrow your selection and find the vibrator that best suits your needs.
The most important factor in buying a vibrator is size - a fact many people tend to gloss over. You can buy an expensive vibrator with all kinds of special features, but you’ll end up disappointed if the vibrator of your dreams turns out too small or too large to use. Most vibrators are sized 5 to 7 inches long and 1 inch wide - similar to the average penis. Vibrators intended exclusively for anal use tend to be a little shorter and thinner while other vibrators can measure a whopping 14 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.
Many vibrator novices make the mistake of buying a vibrator too large for their needs - making it a good idea to start out with an average-sized vibrator. If you feel the need for deeper penetration, look for a longer model with average width so you do not get stuck with something larger than you can comfortably handle. As a good yardstick, you could estimate the size of a lover’s penis and buy a similarly sized vibrator.
There are two standard ways to control the power of your vibrator. The more basic models come with a rotating dial in their base so you can vary the vibrator’s speed from low to high. Other vibrator models have pre-set pulsations. By pressing a button on the vibrator’s base or on a separate remote, you can set the speed from low to high or even select a pre-set pattern that rapidly turns the vibe on and off.
Once you’ve determined a comfortable size for your vibrator, it’s time to think about which model of vibrator suits your needs. Depending on how you plan to use your vibrator, there’s likely a special model of vibrators specifically engineered to suit your needs, whether you’re looking for a simple back massage, dual clitoral and vaginal stimulation from a Rabbit Vibrator or G Spot delight. While there are some vibrators designed to stimulate multiple erogenous zones, many women prefer to have multiple vibrators with each vibrator specializing in one area.

Vibrating Cock Rings - These are usually small rings made of a stretchy material like cyberskin or silicone with a bullet or egg vibrator. The ring fits snugly over the base of the penis - restricting blood flow so a man can stay harder for a longer amount of time.

While browsing through our extensive collection of vibrators, you’ll find several that advertise special features - like pleasure nubs, realistic Look, waterproof controls. This section explains just what these little extras are and what they do.
Pleasure Nubs, Bumps or Ridges - Many higher-end vibrators aim to increase stimulation as much as possible by creating ridges, bumps and pleasure nubs along the vibrator. Ridges are lines that run along the vibrator’s shaft and stick out just a little bit to provide additional stimulation during penetration. On many vibrators, particularly realistic vibrators, these ridges are made to look like veins.
Bumps tend to small, raised circles along the vibrator’s shaft that function similar to ridges. Larger-sized bumps are also found around the vibrator’s base for clitoral stimulation. Bumps have little to no flexibility. Pleasure nubs are small and thin but highly flexible hair-like pieces that stick out along the shaft and near the base for clitoral and vaginal stimulation.
